A varied circular walk starting from Seven Springs car park, one of the many parking areas you will find in the area of Cannock Chase, Staffordshire. Cannock Chase was designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1958 because of its beautiful landscape, its wildlife and its history, it has an extensive area of forest, woodland and parkland. On the walk the paths are of good quality. You will need to negotiate a couple of busy road crossings, a stretch along a roadside grass verge, some stepping stones, a narrow bridge and several gates. There are no toilet facilities along the walk.

Has the potential to be a really gorgeous walk but it is definitely NOT suitable for dogs, as the main road part of the walk has no paths and is an extremely busy main road. We had to turn around at this point and go back the way we came as I wouldn’t feel comfortable walking along it... even without a dog.
